'Basque Games and Dances' Presentation at SU Wednesday, May 2
SALISBURY, MD---When residents of Europe’s Basque Country migrated to the western United States, they brought their culture with them — including games and dances.
The Basques proudly claim their heritage through dance and play as it was done in old Europe, but have adapted their culture of origin to the American world. Liebaert and Otegi reflect on the role of these games and dances in the socialization of new generations of Basque-Americans.
Sponsored by the Sociology and Health and Sport sciences departments, admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu.
